PLEASE SEE THE DOCUMENT BELOW WHICH GOES INTO DETAIL ABOUT HOW TO ORDER UNIFORM OVER THE COMING MONTHS - PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE ORDERING ANY NEW UNIFORM. 

 

Children are encouraged to wear school uniform as it gives them a sense of belonging to the school community. Our uniform colours are yellow and navy blue.

It is not compulsory to wear items with the school logo, although we do encourage this.  Items with the logo are only available from our supplier Uniform4Kids who are based on the Finchley Road in Temple Fortune or online at www.uniform4kids.com or by telephone mail order via 020 8209 0999.  Purchasing uniform via Uniform4Kids helps to raise funds for the school as the supplier donates a percentage of each sale to the school.

Uniform4Kids has many years experience in helping parents and schools with uniform and provide a personal experience to all. Please see the attached details below on how to purchase uniform from Uniform4Kids along with the price list.

Items without the logo can be purchased at any retailer.

The day to day uniform consists of the following items (those marked with an asterisk have the school logo):

Please note jeans are not allowed, and all sweatshirts/cardigans/jumpers should be navy blue. No coloured hoodies/sweatshirts should be worn indoors.

Footwear
Footwear should be sensible and comfortable – the children must be able to put them on without adult assistance (laces only if they can tie their own). Open toed sandals can be worn in the summer, but only if worn with socks. Knee high fashion boots are not acceptable for daily wear. Big boots (e.g. knee high, moon or wellies) should not be worn all day – please send in a change of shoes. Please note that trainers are not allowed in school.


The PE Kit consists of:

                        Yellow short sleeved t-shirt*
                        Navy Blue shorts
                        Plimsolls

The PE Kit stays in school during term time in a PE bag (also available from Uniform4Kids and are of the right size for storage – no swim bags please!) and is taken home to be washed at the end of each half term. Please note tracksuits are not worn by the infant pupils for PE as lessons are held indoors if the weather is inclement.

Reception children require a change of underwear and socks in their PE Bags.

 

Outdoor Wear:
As the children spend a lot of time outside, a suitable coat for outdoor play must be provided - please ensure it is warm and ideally waterproof with a hood.

There are also sun hats with the school logo available on the website for the summer. Although you are not required to purchase a sun hat with a logo, we strongly advise that all children have summer hats for when the sun is hot as there is not as much shade in the playground.

Book Bag
In order to take books home, your child requires a suitable bag. The uniform company supply designated “Book Bags” that are clearly marked with the school name and have a label for your child’s name that fit nicely into their drawers. They are sturdy and can be carried across the shoulder/body and have reflective strips on them.

The PTA also hold regular second hand uniform sales throughout the year, which recycles old uniform (in good condition!) and gives the opportunity to purchase uniform at a much reduced price.

If you have difficulties with the cost of purchasing your child’s uniform, please come to the school office for confidential advice.

ALL ITEMS SHOULD BE CLEARLY MARKED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME

Personalised labels are available from our uniform supplier and many other companies to ensure all items are labelled correctly. 

Our PTA have arranged a special offer with the online supplier STIKINS who give a donation to the School PTA for every order made. They provide:

  • Stick-on name labels for clothes

  • No sewing or ironing needed

  • One pack of sticky name labels for clothes, shoes, & lunchboxes

To make an order just go to www.stikins.co.uk and remember to pop in our school's code 7728 in the School Fundraising Number box. Similarly, the school gets a donation for every Stikins product you buy using this code.

Jewellery
Children should not wear jewellery for health and safety reasons, particularly in the playground and during PE.  If your child has pierced ears small stud earrings are suitable.  Bangles, bracelets, rings and necklaces are not appropriate and should not be worn

Hair
Long hair should be securely tied back in order to avoid accidents on apparatus and reduce the transmission of head lice. Hair bands should be simple and not ornately decorated.

 

All items of school clothing, including PE Kit and bags should be clearly marked with the child’s name so lost items can be returned to their owner. Items which are not labelled are put in the lost property and unclaimed items will be disposed of at the end of each half term.
